Item description for Peanuts Classics The Ultimate Box Set (Peanuts) by Charles M. Schulz...
This one of a kind collection is a little gem that every fan of Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, and the gang will cherish. Packaged in an adorable replica of Snoopy's red dog house, and with a limited print run during its first year in the market, it contains all eight classic titles AND The Peanuts Cookbook... which has been unavailable for over 30 years! Just lift the roof and see what's inside:
- Christmas is Together Time - Happiness is a Sad Song - Happiness is a Warm Puppy - Home is on Top of a Dog House
- I Need All the Friends I Can Get - Love is Walking Hand in Hand - Security is a Thumb and a Blanket
Each small volume is an appealing compendium of pithy Peanuts' wisdom: there's a quote on every spread along with a classic Schulz drawing. They're sweet but never saccharine, and resonate homely, simple truths - like "Happiness is a thumb and a blanket" - that are as relevant today as they were over 40 years ago. And the cookbook includes such tasty recipes as Charlie Brown's Brownies, Snoopy's Pizza, Patty's Buttermilk Pancakes, and More Macaroni and Cheese, Please. Best of all, every book is just how readers remember it: the paper, the ink, even the lamination look and feel just like the originals.

More About Charles M. Schulz
Charles Monroe Schulz (1922 -2000) was a 20th-century American cartoonist best known for his Peanuts comic strip. He was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, to Dena and Carl Schulz. His nickname -Sparky- was given by his uncle, after the horse Spark Plug in the Barney Google comic strip. He attended St. Paul's Richard Gordon Elementary School, where he skipped two half-grades. As a result, he was the youngest in his class when he attended St. Paul Central High years later, which may have been the reason why he was so shy and isolated as a young teenager. After his mother died in February, 1943, he was drafted into the army and sent to Camp Campbell in Kentucky. He was then shipped to Europe two years later to fight in World War II. After leaving the United States Army in 1945, he took a job as an art teacher at Art Instruction Inc., which he attended before he was drafted. First published by Robert Ripley in his Ripley's Believe It or Not!, then in a series of chronicles, The Saturday Evening Post, his first regular comic strip, Li'l Folks was published in 1947 by the St. Paul Pioneer Press. (It was in this strip that Charlie Brown first appeared, as well as a dog that looked much like Snoopy). In 1950 he approached the United Features Syndicate with his best strips from Li'l Folks, and Peanuts made its first appearance on October 2, 1950. This strip became one of the most popular comic strips of all time. He also had a short-lived sports-oriented comic strip called It's Only a Game (1957-1959), but abandoned that strip due to the demands of the success of Peanuts.
Charles M. Schulz lived in Santa Rosa, in the state of California. Charles M. Schulz was born in 1922 and died in 2000.

A Wonderful and Complete Set Jun 10, 2008
It's great to see these books surging in popularity again after so many years... and so true to the originals just as I remember them from the 70s! This great set even includes The Peanuts Cookbook, which has been unavailable for more than thirty years.
What a wonderful box set; I'm so happy that I bought it! I even bought a few as gifts for my friends who have loved the Peanuts throughout their lives, like me!

To have this set in your collection is just a case of 'boxed'memories from way back when!
Snoopy's in the House... Dog House that is! Nov 30, 2007
Nice reproductions of the books. If you loved these gift books in the late 60's or early 70's, it's a treat to see them back in their original form and not colourised or with different artwork as some of the other books that are being sold abroad with the same titles as the books in this set. If you loved Happiness Is a Warm Puppy, you will love the rest of the books in this set. These books, despite what the naysayers expound in the negative reviews on this site, has the heart of Schulz in them unlike a lot of the later books which bear his name and mere re-interpretations of his art.
not the classics at all! Oct 28, 2007
Beware - these are not the comic strip books, but single page drawings with bromide, "hang in there, kitty"-style captions, like a hack 70's greeting card writer was let loose. I made the mistake of buying a handful of these books for nieces and nephews for xmas last year, and when I discovered what crap they were, I was stuck. So now the publisher has packaged them up in Snoopy's doghouse...it's still poop! Get the comic strips, not these books, which are going to leave even a five-year-old feeling cheated.
